STREET SAVVY: Washington Street

Inside ReTULLEd, a special-occasion shop featuring bridal consignment, owner Amy Lee Bonham stocks oodles of excellently priced and often never-worn gowns, along with frocks in enough colors and lengths to please any army of bridesmaids. Nestled between an antiques shop and a florist, and with the addition of tux rentals, it’s no wonder this and other nuptial-minded businesses in the area banded together to form the Irvington Wedding Collective. 5607 E. Washington St., 358-8802, retulled.com.
Its name means “everyday” in Swedish, but there’s nothing plain-Jane about Vardagen, a rustic-cool boutique taking advantage of the bumper crop of Indiana-made T-shirts over the last few years. Hoosier-pride designs by People for Urban Progress and United State of Indiana complement Vardagan’s own label, best-known for a collection based on Christmas-sweater motifs. 8684 E. 116th St., 317-572-5570, shop.vardagen.com.
